Hi, I was just browsing and suddenly got a popup saying they were Microsoft
(and looking like Microsoft) telling me that I had multiple viruses and
worms. The address was "websecurityexamine.com" It was hard to get rid
of-I just kept clicking the "x" Several times it popped up with the "run,
open" dialog box.
After you've cleaned your os successfully (pertinent advice provided by
resident experts) do this:
Routinely practice Safe-Hex.
Hundreds Click on 'Click Here to Get Infected' Ad
I'm using ZoneAlarm which I can't wait to get rid of, but it is in place.
It can be very challenging removing this software application. Oftentimes
using the method in Add or Remove Programs will not do the job
Good alternatives to uninstall ZA:
Uninstall/Remove ZA from your OS and DON'T re-install!
For the average homeuser, the Windows Firewall in XP and Vista does a
fantastic job at its core mission and is really all you need if you have an
'real-time' anti-virus program, [another firewall on your router or] other
edge protection like SeconfigXP (WinXP users only) and practise Safe-Hex.
The windows firewall deals with inbound protection and therefore does not
give you a false sense of security. Best of all, it doesn't implement lots
of nonsense like pretending that outbound traffic needs to be monitored.
Configure WindowsXP by using:
Seconfig XP 1.1
Good luck :)
